You will be required to select your volunteer commitment at the time of registration. You will need to select a total of 4 credits for Pre-StarSkate parents and 8 credits for StarSkate skaters. If you do not wish to volunteer there is an option to payout your volunteer commitment for $400.00 instead of fulfilling the volunteer commitment. If your commitment is not fulfilled at the end of each mandatory fundraising event then the appropriate buy out fee will be applied to your account. The club would appreciate your volunteer time instead of your money.
This year’s commitment will require one of the following, you can choose from the list below:
1. Become an Executive member
2. Volunteer at events earning 4 credits (Pre-STARSkate) or 8 Credits (STARSkate).
The Ardrossan Strathcona Figure Skating Club is a volunteer organization. The people serving the club graciously donate their time and talents so that all children may have the opportunity to skate in the club. All parents are welcome to be a part of the executive or encouraged to help out in any way possible.
To sign up for your volunteer commitment please contact the Executive
Frequently Asked Questions regarding the Ardrossan Strathcona Figure Skating Club Volunteer Commitment:
Why have a volunteer commitment?
Volunteer work is essential to the quality and success of our club. Volunteer fees have proven very successful in amateur sports as a way of ensuring that there are enough people to help with the activities of the organization. The Ardrossan Strathcona Figure Skating Club fee has been set at an affordable level when measured against those of other local amateur sport organizations.
Do I have to volunteer?
No, but if you don’t volunteer the club will require a $400.00 fee. The buy out option can be selected at the time of registration.
If I don’t volunteer where does the money go?
The money will be used for the programming and expenses of our club.
Does one member of the family have to do all the volunteering?
No, any responsible person can volunteer on behalf of a skater and his/her family (a friend, relative, or even the skater himself or herself, if age appropriate.)
How long do I have to complete my volunteer commitment?
Your volunteer commitment needs to be completed by the end of the season (March).
What if I refuse to provide a volunteer commitment?
Refusal to adhere to the volunteer policy of the Ardrossan Strathcona Figure Skating Club will be interpreted as an incomplete registration. The skater will need to provide the volunteer deposit before being considered registered for the skating season.
